The use of two or more displays side-by-side requires similarity of the colors, or more specifically their white points.
Diagnostic displays ship as color-matched sets. If two or more monitors have a noticeable “color” difference (grayscale displays included), it is most likely caused by one of three reasons.
1. They were not color matched in the first place – a common error in commercial displays.
2. A pair of displays were separated out of the box but not tracked.
3. One display was relocated and never matched in its new location.
Color-Match Displays – Best Practices:
- Keep diagnostic displays in color matched pairs (most are shipped this way)
- Calibrate the color-point in color medical displays as needed
- Record and mark displays with their color coordinates, if not already marked
- Inform manufacturer of color coordinate target of the paired (good) display if replacement for a bad display is needed
- Be aware that new technology in color displays used for diagnostic interpretation, including grayscale images, may enable the option to adjust the color point in the field
Our Image Systems brand of diagnostic displays comes with Calibration Feedback Software which simplifies the process for you.
